Windows 7: How to Change the Home Network Name

How to Change the Home Network Name

When I first set up my network, the network name was "Network 1". I've had trouble with the modem/router that my ISP provided for me though and now my network name is "Network 6". This doesn't really matter but I would prefer to be able to change it back to Network 1. Is this possible?
